Florida Department of Environmental Protection Accessibility Policy
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) does not discriminate
on the basis of disability in employment or in the admission and access to its
programs, services or activities. DEP is committed to ensuring that its
programs, activities, employment opportunities, and services are available to
all persons, including persons with disabilities.
The DEP Accessibility Coordinator, located in the Division of
Administrative Services, Bureau of Human Resources Management, has been
designated to coordinate and carry out this department's compliance with the
nondiscrimination requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA). For persons with a disability needing an accommodation to a DEP
program, activity, employment, and/or service, other than State Parks, please
contact Geraldine Austin at 850-245-2522 or
Geraldine.Austin@dep.state.fl.us. For State Parks programs, activities,
employment and/or other service, please contact Terrance McCaffrey at
To ensure we have enough time to provide appropriate accommodation, the
Department would appreciate receiving your request for accommodation as
early as possible before the scheduled event or need for the service.
Web Site Accessibility
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's web designers and
developers make every effort to provide their users with accessible information
in a format which is equally available to all individuals. In designing and
creating its Web Site, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection implements
the accessibility guidelines and principles of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d).
If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, a screen reader, TTY, etc.)
and the format of any of our Web Site material interferes with your ability to access
the information, please Contact Us and a Department of Environmental Protection staff
member will contact you to provide further assistance.
To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate your disability type,
the preferred format for return correspondence, the web address of the requested material and your contact information.
